Ministers Argue Over A9 Speed Cameras
Date: Thursday, August 15 @ 07:23:26 UTC
UK government Treasury minister Danny Alexander has written to the Scottish government's Transport Secretary Keith Brown calling the installation of speed cameras along the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness in Scotland a "knee-jerk decision".
The average speed cameras will be installed on the single carriageway preceding the proposed dualling of the stretch of road which will not be finished until 2025.
Lib Dem MP Alexander says he wants to see evidence that the cameras would help stop accidents. He commented, "I'd like to see the full assessment of all the options for road safety improvements published, so we can all see how the average speed proposal compared to other options which I presume were on the table, like a more targeted approach."
